As Secretariat of the World Federation of Development Financing Institutions (WFDFI), ADFIAP facilitated the World Bank’s global survey on development banks (DBs) which was participated in by 90 national development banks in 61 countries around the world. The survey’s output, Policy Research Working Paper 5969, entitled “Global Survey of Development Banks”, released in February 2012 by the Financial Systems Practice, Financial and Private Sector Development Vice Presidency of the World Bank, is now being disseminated by ADFIAP to its members, its counterpart associations in the WFDFI and other stakeholders .
Authored by Messrs. José de Luna-Martínez and Carlos Leonardo Vicente, Senior Financial Economist and Financial Sector Specialist at the Financial and Private Sector Development Vice Presidency of the World Bank Group, respectively, and produced by the Research Support Team, the study examines how development banks (DBs) operate, what their policy mandates are, what financial services they offer, which type of clients they target, how they are regulated and supervised, what business models they have adopted, what governance framework they have, and what challenges they face. It also examines the countercyclical role played by development banks during the recent financial crisis.
